    The Volvo is included!

    This is a great track, I take no responsibility for the bright and gawkish colors used and after all, it's this beautiful modified street circuit/track anyhow.

    The server will be going up soon, begin hotlapping as soon as you like. I will not be posting any times before the end of the weekend though :sneaky:. I've set it to "Time Trial" so you don't have to go all the way arounfd the track to get a time started.

    And, the Server is UP!

    When did they slip in the Volvo?

    I think the Volvo was smuggled in with STCC(2), along with the Volvo 850 - that's where their skin templates are at, anyway ;)

    btw, the download link seems to be broken, a fontsize-tag made its way in there ;)

    late edit: getting kicked as a possible cheat, anyone else? just extracted the zip to /Locations/ as usual, any ideas? :(

    * Game not available. Host maybe running an update or modified game*

    Hello Dennies.
    I can play the track offline. But as soon as I try to connect to our server, the above message pops up. I have dl the track, and put it in the steamapp/etc/gamedata/location folder, following this:
    ---->

    -----------------------------------------------
    *Tracks?

    Off-line version:
    I recommend taking a backup of C:\Program Files\Race 07 before you continue so it can easily be restored if something goes wrong.

    Open the compressed file (.zip/.rar/.7z).
    If the folder inside is called Gamedata, extract this to:
    C:\Program Files\Race 07\

    If the folder inside has the track name, first check if the Gamedata folder is inside or not. If it is, follow the instruction above.
    If not: Extract the [trackname] folder to:
    C:\Program Files\Race 07\Gamedata\Locations

    On-line version:
    I recommend taking a backup of C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\[USERNAME]\Race 07\ before you continue so it can easily be restored if something goes wrong.

    Open the compressed file (.zip/.rar/.7z).
    If the folder inside is called Gamedata, extract this to:
    C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\common\Race 07\

    If the folder inside has the trackname, first check if the Gamedata folder is inside or not. If it is, follow the instruction above.
    If not: Extract the [trackname] folder to:
    C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\common\Race 07\Gamedata\Locations

    If the Gamedata folder and/or the Locations folder does not exist, you'll need to create it yourself.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    I have Race07 from Steam without any DLC. Maybe the game needs some updates?
    Any hint for a newbie?
    Cheers
    Andrew

    I was just online driving, no problem.
    Can you join other online events?
    If not Try opening steam/Library/race 07/Properties and go though Updates and Local Files to Verify Integrity.

    If you can join other events in the lobby check that you can see the Potrero folder in /Locations and maybe search the HD to make sure there are no other ones slipped into the wrong place.

    NOTE: To all, the server will only let you complete a number of laps, 10-11 and then you will have to leave and return to continue hotlapping. Don't forget to save your car setup!

    Well Dennis... I just made a few laps online ( 2:49) , and it was more or less sliding around. I am playing with Keyboard. But, yes, i might give it a try on Tuesday. Someone has to be the last. ;) ;) The first step is made. :)

    Really nice track/car combo - and bright colors, indeed :D

    Looking forward to seeing everyone's times, I'm liking both the Volvo (although it's pretty unstable) and the Alfa so far, the BMW.. well.. I suppose we'll get along ;)
    I've adjusted the SimBin (Monza, but then, I think they're identical anyways) setups, not too many changes (yet), but the gearing should fit the track quite well now. Gas should be good for two laps.

    I just bought STCC 2 to take place into this event. Didn't drive this track before and the WTCC 87 also very rarely. It's big fun once you remember each corner and start fine tuning your line. ;)

    You better don't clip the big red curbs on the very inside because they unsettle the car too much. So cutting doesn't seem to be an issue here. You just need to be careful not to go too wide in a few places (exit of first combo...)

    Just tryed the BMW now. Which car is in general the best one?
